Good morning, SJB. Yes it is. It was used a couple of years ago. I considered never using it again but changed my mind this morning.
Hope I didn’t ruin your Wednesday.
Not at all! Have a great Wednsday.
You made me look at the picture again, FH. You are right ... not a heifer.
This picture also reminds me of of a simpler time. When I was growing up, we had 5 milk cows, pigs and chickens. My Dad would go to the local auction to buy young calves. We fed them with a bucket with a nipple on it. That was part of our chores, as was milking the cows. I was a country kid! :)
So cute, LTOS.
Thank you ... have a WF Wednesday.
* smile *
Thanks, Luv, for the cute WF graphic.
Wishing you a Warm Fuzzy day!
Teenie, that is such a sweet picture. Thank you for sharing it on this Windy, Fuzzy Wednesday. :)
Have a delightful day.
Not to get into that “old people” stories of “when I was a kid, I had to ......” BUT, I did have to milk a bunch of goats every morning before the school bus picked me up. We had a cow but sold the cows milk and drank goats milk. We had chickens and ducks but we sold the chicken eggs and ate the duck eggs.
It is always good to drop by & see the delightful things you share.
My life is so routine that I could probably just copy & paste my last post (the movies and books would change).
Lovely day of near 70 in the forest with dogs. Took light lunch and a book
Tomorrow will be seeing Act of Valor. Trying a few new recipes.. mostly experiments and mostly good. Thinking of everyone with their challenges in life. Know most here trust God with their lives and future. No other way can match. The political scene is so distressing.
smooches to all
I hope you get some help with insurance. Last year when I had trees down & into various buildings etc there was NO help unless it hit the house w/damage & then it was 1000 deductible.
I had 5 large trees down & estimates were about 4500. HAHAHA.
Had a few friends over to clear things up. Not hauled away or mulched up but chopped up & piled somewhat.
Windy, Fuzzy Wednesday.
Really? We barely have a slight breeze going up here. It's really nice with the door and a few windows open.
We had VERY strong winds in Northridge yesterday. Branches are all over the yard today. Glad you guys didn’t have that much!
Really not much wind today ... wanted something different to say. LOL
It was so cold yesterday and the wind went to my old bones. It was cold last night but is 59 now. Should get down below 29 tonight. Hope the fruit trees make it. There is so much in bloom now.
HI there, Dolly, Have a wonderful evening.
Always good to hear from you. Enjoy the movie tomorrow.
The Weather where I Live has been Nice the Last Few Days, and Some Daffodils and Paperwhites are in Bloom.
I'm still having a Few Problems with my Back after the Surgery in Late October,
But am Hoping that Greater Improvement will Come Over Time.
I'm not a fan of wind at all. Prediction is for rain most of next week. We'll see if they are in error...again! :)
Military commanders always want to have enough troops to accomplish their mission. Most would prefer having too many not too few, but not everyone agrees on just how many troops will be enough.
When Gideon recruited an army of 32,000 men to stand against those who oppressed the Israelites, the Lord told him, The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, My own hand has saved me (Judg. 7:2).
So the Lord began to reduce Gideons army. When the fearful were allowed to leave, 22,000 men went home (v.3). A second reduction cut the force from the remaining 10,000 to 300 troops, of whom the Lord said, By the three hundred . . . I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand (v.7). And so it happened (vv.19-23).
In our life of faith, our resources can become the enemy of trust. God wants us to depend on Him, not our own strength, whether physical, financial, or intellectual.
When the Lord reduces our resources from 32,000 to 300, it is not punishment. It is preparation for Him to be glorified through our lives as we acknowledge and trust His power.
